Thank you. Given the sprawling nature of com.sun APIs in the JDK and the
confusion I sometimes see between com.sun and sun.misc, I wanted to make
easy-to-remember statements about the dominant com.sun container on the
planet -- the JDK. Around 90% of the com.sun namespace in the JDK is for
internal use by the JDK, while around 10% is supported for external use.
Let's reiterate: The sun.misc package was not removed in JDK 9, nor
strongly encapsulated. It was available in JDK 9 just like in JDK 8. It
continues to be available in JDK 11 and JDK 17.
